Sports Premium

The Royal School



Use of Sports Premium 2016-17

The Government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2016. 

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in school games 
  • run sports activities with other schools

Since September 2016, schools must report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding including information on the website and details of how the school plans to spend their PE and sport grant. Schools must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.


Our Provision

At The Royal School the funding received in 2016-17 was spent to cover the cost of:

  •          A teacher delivering PE and PLT membership
  •          Our membership to Windsor Sports Partnership,
  •          Sports Coaching for each class.
  •          Additional PE equipment
  •          Hosing and inter-school cross-country event.


This provision is reviewed at every governor meetings (See dates on website)



Below is a summary of our data and how the pupil premium was used during 2016/17 and its planned use for 2017/18.


Proposed Action



Sports Coaching- specialist teacher who teaches PE to the whole school.

Additional high quality PE teacher supports curriculum for such a small team of staff.


Our membership to Windsor Sports Partnership

The partnership coordinates tournaments across all Windsor Schools.

Specialist teachers who run PE sessions at school with the children and training for the staff impact the quality of our provision.

Tournaments provide valuable inter-school competitions.



Additional training + teacher delivering PE

PE training and support is essential to deliver high quality teaching.




Next Year
